Car Free Day during Ramadhan

Very early every Sunday morning, until around 9am, from Patung Pemuda Statue on Jalan Jenderal Sudirman to Monas on Jalan Mohammad Husni Thamrin, the streets are closed to traffic for Car Free Day.  Usually the road is filled with people walking, jogging, riding bikes and rollerblades, but we found during Ramadhan the roads are incredibly quiet which makes for a beautiful Sunday morning adventure in Jakarta.

Starting our ride at 6.30am, we had the road almost to ourselves and Monas only had a small amount of people, compared to the usual heaving buzz that is there on the weekend.. so we could ride around in relative peace and just enjoy watching the morning unfold as the sun rose about this crazy city..

If you want to enjoy the city without the pollution and noise, you should head down to enjoy Car Free Day and enjoy the peace and quiet.. it doesn’t happen very often, so make the most of it!

Good Morning Jakarta!
